According to various sources, Miami Dolphins running back De’Von Achane will miss multiple weeks with a knee injury he suffered against the New York Giants this past Sunday.

There is optimism that Achane will be back this season, as his injury is not considered one of the season-ending variety. However, the rookie standout is visiting more doctors today to get a second opinion on how severe his injury may be.

It’s a tough blow for a Miami offense that has been humming on the ground as of late. The Dolphins ran for 222 yards against the Giants last weekend — 151 of those rushing yards belonging to Achane.

Achane has a total of 527 yards and seven touchdowns on the season. He’s averaging a whopping 12.1 yards per carry.

The Dolphins will lean on veteran Raheem Mostert in Achane’s absence. Jeff Wilson Jr. could also be back in the near future as the team has said the previously injured running back may begin practicing this week for the first time since his injured reserve designation prior to the regular season opener.

More information will be provided to our readers once it is made available from the team.
